Bon appétit!

We had such a great time eating in France that it deserves it's own blog post completely dedicated to photos of food. Bon Appetit! 

We've relied heavily on other traveler's reviews before choosing a restaurant. The first night in Paris we took a lovely walk in the rain to the Montmartre neighborhood to Crêperie Brocéliande. Montmartre is up near Sacré Cœr basilica, an artsy district which offers gorgeous views of the city since you are up on a hill. Parisians eat late, and I think it was about 8 pm before we wandered in. Anyway, we ordered 2 savory crepes. One was stomach sausage and cheese and the other was something like a meat lovers with stomach sausage, pork sausage, blood sausage, bacon and ham. We had thought that maybe stomach sausage was just sausage cased in intestines (which is normal), but turns out we don't think it tastes that great. However, the caramelized onions and cheese that were in these crepes were outstanding! So delicious! I really want to go back so I can try everything else on the menu!  

Of course we had to order dessert, so I chose a crepe that was filled with banana, chocolate, almond, coconut and topped with ice cream and whipped cream. It was fabulous! We highly recommend this crêperie if you are looking for an authentic French restaurant in Montmartre. 

The next night we braved the rain again and picked up some take away to have with a bottle of wine near the Eiffel Tower! You won't find a place with better atmosphere!!!

We had been waiting to visit a bakery called Le Grenier à Pain since they are closed on Tuesday and Wednesday. They have multiple locations, but we visited their Abbesses location since it was in the Montmartre area and we could enjoy our baked good with a view of the city! Note: Jeff and I have eaten a primarily gluten-free diet for the past 6 years. To say that we were like 'kids in a candy shop' would be an extreme understatement.

We took some of France with us on the train ride back to London. I had Jeff a little nervous because right before we were supposed to be at the train station we walked a few blocks in search of a Fromagerie (cheese shop). At the shop we bought  some brie de melun and comté to go with our French baguette and salami. Yum!
